Sec.  184.1498  Microparticulated protein product.

    (a) Microparticulated protein product is prepared from egg whites or 
milk protein or a combination of egg whites and milk protein. These 
protein sources may be used alone or in combination with other safe and 
suitable ingredients to form the microparticulated product. The mixture 
of ingredients is high-shear heat processed to achieve a smooth and 
creamy texture similar to that of fat. Safe and suitable ingredients 
used in the preparation of the microparticulated protein product must be 
used in compliance with the limitations of the appropriate regulations 
in parts 172, 182, and 184 of this chapter.
    (b) The ingredient is used in food in accordance with Sec.  
184.1(b)(2) at levels not to exceed current good manufacturing practice. 
The affirmation of the use of this ingredient as generally recognized as 
safe (GRAS) as a direct human food ingredient is based upon the 
following conditions of use:
    (1) The ingredient is used in food as a thickener as defined in 
Sec.  170.3(o)(28) of this chapter or as a texturizer as defined in 
Sec.  170.3(o)(32) of this chapter.
    (2) The ingredient is used in frozen dessert-type products except 
that the ingredient may not be used to replace the milk fat required in 
standardized frozen desserts.
    (3) The name of the ingredient used in the ingredient statement on 
both bulk and packaged food must include the source of the protein 
(e.g., ``microparticulated egg white protein''), followed by a 
parenthetical listing of each of the ingredients in the 
microparticulated protein product, in descending order of predominance. 
Microparticulated protein product must be used in accordance with this 
requirement or its addition to food will be considered by FDA to 
constitute the use of an unapproved food additive (see Sec.  
184.1(b)(2)).
